Zechariah 5
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And I turn back, and lift up my eyes, and look, and behold, a flying scroll. 2And he says to me, “What are you seeing?” And I say, “I am seeing a flying scroll, its length [is] twenty by the cubit, and its breadth [is] ten by the cubit.” 3And he says to me, “This [is] the execration that is going forth over the face of all the land, for everyone who is stealing, on the one side, according to it, has been declared innocent, and everyone who has sworn, on the other side, according to it, has been declared innocent.” 4“I have brought it out,” a declaration of YHWH of Hosts, “and it has come into the house of the thief, and into the house of him who has sworn in My Name with a falsehood, and it has remained in the midst of his house, and has consumed it, both its wood and its stones.”

5And the messenger who is speaking with me goes forth and says to me, “Now lift up your eyes, and [do you] see what this [is] that is coming forth?” 6And I say, “What [is] it?” And he says, “This—the ephah that is coming forth.” And he says, “This [is] their aspect in all the land. 7And behold, a disc of lead lifted up; and this [is] a woman sitting in the midst of the ephah.” 8And he says, “This [is] the wicked woman.” And he casts her into the midst of the ephah, and casts the weight of lead on its mouth. 9And I lift up my eyes, and see, and behold, two women are coming forth, and wind [is] in their wings; and they have wings like wings of the stork, and they lift up the ephah between the earth and the heavens. 10And I say to the messenger who is speaking with me, “To where [are] they causing the ephah to go?” 11And he says to me, “To build a house for it in the land of Shinar.” And it has been prepared and has been placed there on its base.
